The Responsible Business Awards 2014


The 2014 Responsible Business Awards cycle has seen 159 new Big Ticks awarded with a further 82 entries re-accrediting their Big Tick status, each demonstrating the powerful impact of business on society and the environment.

SMEs through to multi-nationals, from all sectors, are stimulating local economies, addressing skills shortages, reducing impact of unemployment, creating healthier and happier employees, cutting dependency on our natural resources, and allowing 9 billion people to lead quality lives by 2050.

The UK's longest running and most respected awards championing responsible business, our Awards are designed for business, by business. Rigorously assessed by business peers from all sectors, the Awards encourage and celebrate the responsible business movement across the UK.

Our peer assessors identify and award a BITC Big Tick to all entries demonstrating significant achievement in their responsible business programme, while the accolade of Overall Category Winner is given by our Judging panel to the entry with the most outstanding programme and impact.

In addition, we offer a selection of award categories which focus on local impact in an area near you.
